On Not Getting It

Joshua Bond Poems Leave a Comment

I didn’t ‘get it’ –
the joke, the artwork, the point
because I had the wrong map
which emphasised the vital importance
of ‘getting it’, else be left behind

many foggy years later
I realised ‘not getting it’
was a distinct advantage
opening doors of perception
to a fuller, richer kingdom

cultivating ‘not getting it’ though
requires great faith
but paves the way for huge surprises
which life offers freely and generously …
so often missed by those who ‘get it’

being free from all that
insane pressure to ‘get it’
opens the way to true community
friendship and satisfaction –
thank you.
